## SPLASH Workshops

Following its long-standing tradition, SPLASH 2017 will host a variety of high-quality workshops, allowing their participants to meet and discuss research questions with peers, to mature new and exciting ideas, and to build up communities and start new collaborations. SPLASH workshops complement the main tracks of the conference and provide meetings in a smaller and more specialized setting. Workshops cultivate new ideas and concepts for the future, optionally recorded in formal proceedings.

##  Call for Submissions:

We encourage proposals for workshops on any topic relevant to SPLASH. If there is a topic relevant to SPLASH that you feel passionate about, and you want to connect with others who have similar interests, you should consider submitting a proposal to organize a workshop! The exact format of the workshop can be defined by the proposal submitters, and we more than welcome new, and unconventional ideas for workshop formats. The following suggestions may serve as a starting point:

- Mini-conferences provide their participants the possibility to present their work to other domain experts. The smaller and more specialized setting of the workshop allows for more extensive Q&A sessions and facilitates ample discussions,which may continue after the workshop. Typically, presentations of work-in-progress as well as of completed projects are welcome. The workshop may or may not produce formal proceedings.

- Retreats act as a platform for domain experts to gather with the purpose of tackling the issues of a predetermined research agenda. Retreats are highly interactive and goal-oriented, allowing their participants to address open challenges in their domain, to explore new, uncharted ideas, and to (maybe even) uncover new, promising research domains.

- Agenda-setting workshops provide a forum for domain experts to determine a research agenda for a sub-field, and may include collaborations on an agenda document that is published after the workshop is over.

Other common activities at workshops include poster sessions, hands-on practical work, and focus groups.

Proposal submitters should feel free to direct questions about workshop formats to the workshop chairs. Workshops that include presentation of research papers, and that implement a SIGPLAN-approved selection process, may be archived as formal proceedings in the ACM Digital Library; note that this option is available only to submitters to the early phase.

## Workshop Submission Phase:

This year, SPLASH provides two options to submit proposals, either Early Phase or Late Phase (but not both):

Early Phase Submissions due: 20 January 2017
Late Phase Submissions due: 3 March 2017
